Reason is internal scheduling of the software running on the 2950. Responding to ICMP Echo Requests ("ping requests") is probably one of the lowest-priority tasks on the 2950, so we schedule the process that replies to ICMP Echo Requests at a very low priority. Remember, moving packets is Job 1.

Again, this is not an indication of a problem
